"As thoroughfares go, Aviation Boulevard has a shortage of interesting sights. There’s one exception, and it’s a big one – the restaurant just south of the runways at LAX where a sprawling building sits next to an eye-catching gaggle of antique aircraft. Most are warbirds from both World Wars but a few are vintage airliners, one decked out in faded Western Airlines livery. Welcome to the Proud Bird, a landmark that once was a fabled nightspot and has been reborn as a 21st century food bazaar."

"Great news for aviation fans and plane spotters! The legendary 50-year-old, LAX-adjacent Proud Bird restaurant has reopened after closing for more than a year (they came close to closing for good). The new Proud Bird looks nothing like the old except for the sign, vintage plane replicas in the parking lot and back yard."

"In 1958, David Tallichet, a former pilot in World War II, moved to Long Beach to start working at the Ivanhoe Room inside the Lafayette Hotel. By 1967, Tallichet was opening his own restaurant along the landing path of Los Angeles International Airport. The Proud Bird (named for Tallichet's favorite airline, Continental) quickly became a destination for travelers and locals alike."

“There are a lot of similarities from what my dad envisioned with the restaurant when he evolved it over time,” John Tallichet explained. “We still have the planes out front, and we still have the planes out in the park. Over time, he collected photos and put them up throughout. There wasn’t a rhyme or reason; it was just kind of an interesting place to walk around and see all the photos. Because we opened up the inside, we lost some wall space and so we had to reimagine that and create a lot of murals and more dedicated theme spaces. But because we opened the place up, we were able to put an aircraft inside the building.”

The well-known establishment has been renovated out of extinction and into a gathering place for family and friends.

On June 29, the Proud Bird, a historic and iconic restaurant with strong ties to the local community, found new life as The Proud Bird Food Bazaar & Event Center. Now, a new food hall with interactive aviation exhibits and a renovated events center, its grand opening marks the 50th anniversary of the restaurant, which is owned and operated by the pioneer of the themed restaurant, Specialty Restaurants Corporation (SRC), and first opened its doors in July 1967.
